Five Minute Friday: Motivate

I’ve missed Five Minute Friday.  It’s good to be back.

Linking up with Kate Motaung and the FMF community.

I’ve fallen off the exercise bandwagon countless times. Also, countless times I’ve started new programs.

So, I didn’t anticipate that this time would be so hard.

Just like a rocket leaving earth’s gravity, getting started takes more momentum than continuing on.

It took a lot of pieces to get a new exercise program off the ground this time.

I needed a strong why to overcome resistance.

I needed help overcoming the technical obstacles.

I needed new shoes.

I needed to work and re-work my schedule (and re-work it again) to pull it off.

I needed a time-bound goal to work for: running a 5K on March 25th.

Motivate has a lot of components. I forgot how complex it was.
